About a year after the Mayflower arrived in the New World, Colonel William Beal came to America on the Fortune. He soon settled in the area of Jonesport and Beals Island. The quaint area of Jonesport and Beals, on the northern section of Maine's shoreline, became a summer haven for many families in northern Maine and remains a summer resort area today. Jonesport's livelihood still relies on fishing and sardine packing, as it did over 100 years ago. Beals, a community on Beals Island, is known for its deep-sea fishing. Over 200 images reflect the peaceful life in Jonesport, Beals, and the outer islands of Jonesport as it has been for many years. Residents and tourists spend time exploring the many secluded bays and islands, walking the beaches, and picking the blueberries that are abundant in this area of the country.
